The emergence of Ethernet as an industry standard for communications on board trains has moved from concept to reality. As a moving object, a train is subject to strong mechanical stresses and high safety requirements. Today’s connectivity technology and the results of field experiences so far demonstrate that fiber optic is and will remain a fully appropriate technology for the rail industry in the future. This whitepaper examines how fiber optic technology has been adapted to the requirements of railway vehicles and how it is now ready to support the industry’s new business strategies better than any other physical layer medium.
